Stop the Presses: Oprah Will Choose

Everyone’s talking about it. Forbes. AP. The Charlotte Observer. It must be a big hairy deal.

Windy City multimedia maven Oprah Winfrey will make a new selection for her book club. On Wednesday. And, apparently, the world is holding it’s breath.
A new Oprah book club pick will be announced Wednesday on her television talk show, the same day Winfrey hosts the author of her current selection, Academy Award-winning actor Sidney Poitier.
More details when she actually, you know, chooses.

And while we’re talking about Oprah, people who care about such things will be interested to learn that a former intern to Oprah’s production company has been named Miss USA. It’s kind of too bad for her. The headlines have gotten skewed. Instead of blasting “Rachel Smith Wins Miss USA” media outlets like ABC are saying “Ex-Oprah Intern Crowned Miss USA.” Funny old world, when the biggest part of a story about a pageant winner is which media mogul she doesn’t work for anymore.

Details are here.

I think that the ex-intern headlines are a better choice. Few people knew Rachel's name before she won. Ex-Oprah intern probably got more people to read the story.
